The Koobface worm that made the rounds via Facebook earlier this year has spread to Twitter. Twitter followers are receiving tweets with an embedded TinyURL link that reroutes users to the AdultFriendFinder website or another site that entices users to download an infected video file. As usual, the vigilant will avoid clicking on embedded links, even if sent on a friend’s account.
If you think you have been infected with malware through Facebook or Twitter, it is best to act quickly. Running a full virus and spyware scan usually will detect and remove this infection. If this does not work, seek qualified professional help, and sooner is always better in cases such as this.Share
